hi! how are you? …
no, really how are you?
this is weird because i usually ask people how they are doing because i care. i want to know. saying hi is a nice friendly game if played correctly. played wrong will tell a lot about the person.
unfortunately, we not only open the can but, we spill the beans on how we ask someone how they are doing. oh, i’m fine and so and so and so …. hang on there people – i only asked how you are doing not what you are doing.
synopsis of the scenario
you should be honest about how you say hi! how are you? what i do is wait for the person to face me or i will position myself in be in front of the person. never walk behind someone and say hi! if you are saying hi! from afar or from behind – don’t expect a response. and if you say hi! to invite someone over for a brief chat – which leads to an ignore. kiss your sweet ass goodbye to any new hi.
there is an exception rule – shy hi! shy smile, shy girl or guy is a different special, a good special – just say hi! smile, or gesture in any responsive manner as you can. being shy is very special and sweet.
special to this game
saying hi! or how are you? is a friendly polite game. do not turn it into something terrible.
also, i always let one special person know that my hi and hello is for them.
– do onto yourself as you would want done onto you
